I was out to the southwest the other day, rode down to Glencoe for lunch and came back through Hutchinson with a chum on a 2015.
It's a tad hot this weekend around here. Good idea to go early!

Looks like lake Minnetonka in the background behind your bike?

It's a park I found in chanhassan. Can't remember the name. 5 miles away from where I live. Never knew it existed lol. Love riding early in the morning.

Yet to take the bike to lake minnetonka. Might do that tomorrow at 6 AM

Oh we couldn't help ourselves. It escalated very quickly.

Very nice. Have to ask, how do you like that Schuberth helmet?

Well, I have mixed feelings. I love the color and design. You can feel internal materials scream quality. But the dang thing is big. Wish the shell is a bit smaller.

Drop down visor comes very handy and I love it. It relatively quite when vents are not open. But loud when they are.

Overall, it's just OK. price is too dang high though. I know I'm also paying for the integrated speakers and mic. Have not used them yet. I think the helmet would have been kick ass if it was around $500 with a smaller shell. Unfortunately, it's just OK the way it is right now.

Just after sunrise is the only time to ride here in the southeast in the summertime. We get 30 degree climbs in temps by 1 PM.

Thanks for a VG write-up on SCHUBERT helmets.

Awesome dude! I'm a morning Rider.... I love getting up and heading out just before day break.... I've never been much to hop on my Kawi to go for a pleasure ride later in the day.... Now I do ride my bike everyday in the summer here in canuckistan but evening riding is to do errands and some shopping..... just don't get in the groove when I try to start an adventure late in the day...

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." George Carlin, US comedian and actor (1937 - 2008)
